"Biology Inquiries" offers educators a handbook for teaching middle and high school students engaging lessons in the life sciences. Inspired by the National Science Education Standards, the book bridges the gap between theory and practice. With exciting twists on standard biology instruction the author emphasizes active inquiry instead of rote memorization. "Biology Inquiries" contains many innovative ideas developed by biology teacher Martin Shields. This dynamic resource helps teachers introduce standards-based inquiry and constructivist lessons into their classrooms. Some of the book's classroom-tested lessons are inquiry modifications of traditional 'cookbook' labs that biology teachers will recognize. "Biology Inquiries" provides a pool of active learning lessons to choose from with valuable tips on how to implement them.
